Sounds like you have it all under control, you will be happy with the TST 507 system as well and hopefully will get many trouble free miles.

When making decisions on the purchase of replacement tires it is wise to consider all points of view, to thoughtfully weigh information that is presented containing third party evaluation, and to not discount any information because someone says it is bunk. Most importantly you should know the weight your tires will be required to carry, and you should consider some factor for additional load as your DW and yourself add those things you just cannot do without.

Good job for improving the confidence for your Monty, but what about the spare? It's always good to have confidence in a good spare, too. You hate to have to use it, but it does happen?

Congrats on the new tires. On my '14 I kept the OEM Marathon for a spare. Figured it could get me to a tire shop if need be.

I might suggest you call TST and ask about valve stems. I believe they recommend solid steel stems with the flow thru sensors. The rubber/brass HP ones are OK for the 507RV ones.

I went with the 507RV non flow thru. It takes the same amount of time to remove the sensor as it does to remove a valve stem cap.
